Name: Jenny Shulkin/Jennifriend/Lil J
Disciplines/Current Categories: Women Cat4
Goals for the upcoming season: Cake up. Buy Dolan. Race Track. Run Marathon. HAVE FUN.
Why did you start racing: I’m nuts about working out every day, so I figured I'd rather do it with friends. When I'm not biking I’m running. Or lifting. Or swimming. Or watching SVU.
First Race Story: Milwaukee Cross Race, also first time on a geared bike. Came to a complete, absolute, safe and stable stop before I attempted to either mount or dismount my bike.
1st Bicycle: Black Lotus Road bike converted to a single speed. I was 18. First time my mom saw me ride a bike, Northbrook Cross Race.
Current bikes: Redline Cross Bike, Fuji Track/Commuter, GT BMX on loan, Harry Havnoonian in spirit.
Favorite Bicycle story: 10 minutes on bike in LA getting pulled over for "swerving through cars, one being a cop car, and running red light in front of set cop car” …and sweet talking my way out of ticket.
Bicycle superstitions: Never bike with scissors.
Dumbest thing you've done on a bike: Ride in Lake Michigan. Bikes don't swim.
Special Talents: I can be VERY VERY VERY short.
Strengths: Taping bars, seriously, hit me up. Its also my favorite pastime. Oh, and climbing.
Real Talk: This team, these boys and girls, mean a lot to me, more than bikes.
Final words of wisdom? "Just Do It." (-Nike, circa 1978)
